Word came down from the production today that filing has officially wrapped on the semi-inide movie Lonely Joe, which is unfortunately calling itself Saw meets The Sixth Sense, despite the fact that the plot has nothing to do with kids who see dead people nor cancer-ridden psychos.
Instead, the film is about a girl, Michele (played by Wrong Turn 2’s Erica Leerhsen) who goes back to investigate what happened to her brother, James, whose body was found along with Joe Gainard, both dead at the railroad tracks. All evidence suggested Joe was the killer of James, but died of “natural causes” before he could leave the scene of the crime.
In the ten years hence, over 30 people have died at roughly the same spot, so Michelle is out to get to the bottom of the mystery.
The production sent over the link to a rough trailer cut from dailies that you can check out below, and you can hit the Lonely Joe MySpace page to check out stills and storyboards from the production. We’ll have more about Lonely Joe as it comes down the line so stay tuned!
Hope no one ever takes to calling ou Lonely Joe, especially if you’re name isn’t Joe, in the Dread Central forums!
